When I had a camp trailer, pulled with a F-150 running on gas. Now driving a motorhome, and still running on gas. Ford V-10, no power issue and getting 11-12 mpg towing mini van on a dolly @ 4100 pounds.

Gas F250. Couldn't justify the extra $8k for Diesel plus the extra maintenance costs. More expensive air filter, 13 qts of oil, urea at oil change, DPF ($1k I think) if it plugs!

Gas. I only tow 3-4k miles a year and drive another 12-15k unloaded. No way I could justify a diesel truck only towing my 26BH. I am thinking a diesel will be the next one though in 10 years when we start thinking about a 5th wheel.
